The College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati has as its primary mission the creation of a better visual and design environment. DAAP is frequently ranked as one of the best art and design schools in the nation. Business Week ranked its design programs as one of the world's elite. I.D. (International Design) Magazine listed UC among the globe's Top 10 design schools - the only public institution to make that list.
A driving force at DAAP is my colleague, Craig Vogel. Craig is the director of the Center for Design Research and Innovation at DAAP. He is also a professor in the School of Design with an appointment in Industrial Design. Craig is a leading voice in cross-University initiatives in innovation. From the UC website:
